    Great videos and explanations!

    I have an M2 and can do the basics like hover and fly in all orientations right side up, forward flight and do figure 8, circuits are not 100% but I can do them slowly, counter Clockwise is more difficult.

    Sometimes if I don't keep 100% focus, I may lose orientation for a moment. Is that normal, or does that mean I still don't have 100% control yet?

    I can do flips relatively easily on the simulator. I tried them on the M2. I managed to flip twice but didn't take long to crash it. So I am following your video here to ensure I am ready before moving to 3D.

    I can not hover upside down at all on the simulator. Is it just a lot of practice, or is there a better way to learn it?

    Thank you so much!.

    A lot of flyers lack patience and discipline when it comes to basics.

    Wow, so happy I found this series. Just getting back into RC helicopters after being out of it for almost a decade now. Had a beautiful Furry Tempest back in the day, and a nice raptor 50 v2 to zing around. It's crazy to see how much has changed since then. Thanks for taking the time to do this series!

    Omg Bert! Didn't recognize you with your glasses and hat. Thanks so much for the videos on 3d its really handy and means alot because I find them very informative and educational.

  • MadMan:

    Been flying RC for 30 years and helis for 20 and despite having a lame routine, Bert's video's are showing me for the first time I don't even have half of the fundamentals I would need to be a fourth as good as he is. As the skies become crowded with soul-less Amazon robots and we come into an age where the tech we have watched or helped develop over the last 100 years ends up biting us in the ass, it's great to see someone with Bert's skills still dedicated enough to take the time to do these.

  • Sothea Mam:

    Hi…Bert can all heli setup the same for 3D

  • Joe Fagan:

    This is lesson #1 – should take me 12 months!

  • Hussain Akhtar:

    To learn all sorts of hovering, should we learn in 3d Mode (stunt 2) or should we learn in safe mode? thanks for your replies. When you say we should know all types of hovering, does it mean it should be in 3d mode, right?
